  1. Freeman 5 is Peck 4 for farthings (and Freeman 6 is Peck 5 - the three berries obverse).
  2. Yeah no mix-ups on the 1925 by the looks of it.
  3. Ah yes: https://www.noble.com.au/auctions/lot?id=450605 Thank you.
  4. What are the Groom numbers for the reverses? I have 157 and 163 denticles for the obverses but I think the different reverses have the same number of denticles.
  5. Many thanks. Unhelpfully listed under the sixpences of 1880!
  6. That's quite nice - good call out to their heritage.

    Color Flying Scotsman £2 coin

    The Royal Mint have done coloured coins before haven't they? Or is this pad-printed rather than painted?
  8. Is the 1839 proof sixpence with obverse 6 mentioned in any books?

    Auction House Fees

    Seems to be - buyers fees and sellers fees together are now standard, though I have seen some auction houses pay you for the big ticket lots as VickySilver said.

    Halfpenny ID check

    Message sent. I don't think I was able to get an answer on obverse 11* though. My 2c (or 2p) is it's the same obverse - the descriptions seem to be contradictory at times and manual touch-ups to some working dies seems like a reasonable explanation.
  11. https://www.ramint.gov.au/circulating-coins shows the current Australian designs - they're not the classic designs of 100-150 years ago but they have a nice simplicity to them I think.
  12. Still in circulation is a tough one - I like Australia and New Zealand's at least, although they've been unchanged for close to 60 years.

    1965 Halfpenny

    Nice find.
  15. Nice find! From the first photo I would have said a letter blunder but based on the above photo maybe something just damaged the die?
